British Hairdressing Awards 2012 – Finalists Announced!

The Oscars of the hairdressing industry, otherwise known as the British Hairdressing Awards (BHA’s), are an occasion for all hair enthusiasts and talented individuals to come together and rejoice in all things hairdressing-related.

With nine regional awards, six specialist awards and one highly coveted British Hairdresser of the Year award, the BHA’s pay homage to the best the British hairdressing industry has to offer.

Presented by the renowned industry publication and one of STRUCTURE’s biggest fans, Hairdressers Journal, the awards have now reached the next stage – votes have been counted and verified and finalists have been announced!

And so, it is with great pleasure that we can reveal that not one, but two of our very own UK Design Team members have been selected to compete in the finals! Drumroll please…. Congratulations to Ryan Nicoletti-Dowd of Wigg salon in Oxfordshire and Ian Davies of Ocean Hairdressing in Cardiff for making it into the categories of Southern Hairdresser of the Year and Wales and South West Hairdresser of the Year.

This is a huge achievement for both individuals, who have been judged by a selection of the industry’s leading lights, including the Hairdressers Journal Hall of Fame members and both past and present winners of the British Hairdresser of the Year crown.

Together with the other exceptional finalists, Ian and Ryan will now submit a further four images, which will be put forward for the second round of judging. We would like to wish the best of luck to Ryan, Ian and all of the talented finalists who all stand a chance at gaining this superb recognition when the winners will be announced at the BHA ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London this November.
